Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
In this Red Hepner series entry, FBO's plucky boy rider Buzz Barton, as Red, saves his prospector sidekick Hank Robbins (Frank Rice) from the hangman. Robbins is falsely accused of murdering Bob McDonald's (Sam Nelson) father, but Red, in his own inimitable way, manages to catch the real killer, nasty James Sykes (Al Ferguson). This was the penultimate Red Hepner film, followed a month later by the final installment, Pals of the Prairie. Despite the series' popularity, FBO closed down their Western units in favor of stagey sound films. The little poverty row firm was later incorporated into the new RKO.
